Nylon Fabric Textiles

Nylon fabric is a thermoplastic material similar to silk, made from petroleum, which can be melt-processed into various films, or shapes. Nylon fabric textiles are lightweight, durable and available in a range of sizes, thicknesses and colours. In addition, nylon fabric exhibits high resistance to insects, fungi, animals, as well as molds, mildew, rot, and many chemicals. Our nylon fabric textiles can be manufactured plain, or self-adhesive backed with a peel-able liner on one or both sides. Additionally, nylon fabric textiles can be laminated to neoprene sponge to create wet suits, protective clothing, or orthopaedic supports.

Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets Limited, whether we manufacture as a one-off or in large quantities, we work closely with our customers to provide a completely bespoke service. Utilizing state-of-the-art machinery and a highly trained workforce, we produce top quality products to meet a wide range of specifications.

Nylon Fabric textiles are available from us in many forms including:

    What are Nylon Fabric Textiles?

    The term nylon refers to a family of synthetic polymers commonly used to produce a variety of products. In contrast to organic fibres or semi-synthetic fibres, nylon fibres are entirely synthetic, which means they do not originate from organic materials.

    Nylon fabric is composed of a long chain of carbon-based molecules called monomers. There are several types of nylon, but the majority are derived from polyamide monomers found in crude oil, commonly referred to as petroleum. Among other things, nylon fabric textiles are widely used in seatbelts and tire cords because of their durability and ability to retain their shape after getting wet. 

    Why use Nylon Fabric Textiles?s

    Nylon fabric textiles are used in a range of applications due to their strength and elasticity. No matter what grade of nylon you purchase, it is an extremely durable material that is stronger than some metals.

    Furthermore, its elasticity allows it to be shaped and moulded into almost any design with ease. Nylon polymers are widely used in a variety of applications, including flooring, rubber reinforcement, moulded parts for electrical equipment, and food packaging films.

    Different Grades of Nylon Fabric Textiles

    Here at Advanced Seals & Gaskets Ltd, we work closely with a network of suppliers and manufacturers to ensure we offer a wide variety of products while keeping lead-times to a minimum. Grades of nylon fabric textiles available from us include:

    • Nylon 66:  formed by combining hexamethylenediamine and a for of dicarboxylic acid. Commonly used in the textile and packaging industries
    • Nylon 6: Unlike other nylons, nylon 6 is not a condensation polymer, but instead formed by ring-opening polymerization. Commonly used in seals and wear strips.

    Benefits of using Nylon Fabric Textiles?

    • Durable
    • High elasticity
    • Excellent abrasion resistance
    • Highly resilient
    • High resistance to insects, fungi, animals, as well as Molds, mildew, rot, and many chemicals
    • Melts instead of burning
    • Good Heat Resistance
    • Easy to Machine

    Advantages of using Nylon Fabric Textiles

    Using nylon fabric textiles provides a number of benefits, including noise dampening properties, strong wear and mold resistance, and good heat resistance. Nylon is often chosen to replace bronze, brass, aluminium, or steel parts due to its easy conversion, low cost and high performance in demanding environments.

    Among the many industries in which nylon fabric textiles are used is the automotive industry, where nylon is commonly used for washers, gaskets, and spacers.
